LEC GROUP TO KICKSTART NATIONAL YOUTH MENTORSHIP SUMMIT 2022
A 2020 World Bank report titled “Youth Employment Programs in Ghana: Options for Effective Policy Making and Implementation” identifies agribusiness, entrepreneurship, apprenticeship, construction, tourism, and sports as key sectors that can offer increased employment opportunities for Ghanaian youth. It also calls for more investments in career guidance and counseling, work-based learning, coaching, and mentoring to equip young people with the skills needed for work. When last did you attend a youth mentorship program? Are you a student, worker, or both? Mentoring programs can be a powerful recruiting and retention tool when developed thoughtfully and intentionally. If resourced adequately and deployed intentionally, mentoring programs can attract potential employees, empower the current workforce, and retain talent.
LEC Group, in partnership with Adom FM & TV, Asempa FM, Brandeis International Business School (USA), Regional Ministries, and Role Model Africa, brings you Ghana’s most preferred youth gathering and a 15th-anniversary celebration with the sole aim to practically empower the youth of the nation to capitalize on opportunities in our current economy.
